Eleven Candidates In Epic Democratic Primary to Replace Moran (Connection Newspapers.Com)

Virginia Flag The Democratic primary is shaping up to be the most competitive election in recent memory, one with an unprecedented number of candidates. So far, 11 candidates have announced their intention to run in the June primary. Election officials are predicting a turnout of about 64,000 voters. That means a winning candidate could emerge with a few thousand votes.

"It wouldn't surprise me if we had a winner on the low side of 12,000 votes," said Stephen Farnsworth, political science professor at the University of Mary Washington. "What we are talking about here is a Democratic nominee, who is almost certainly assured of election given this district, could be elected with about the size of a decent size high-school basketball game fan base."
